Located to the left of the Astronomy classroom's door is a a large circular black framed announcement board. Walk too far to the right or left and its glass surface resembles the phases of the moon, so you must stand directly in front of it to be able to read it. This is the place to find information on class times, homework assignments, and any other Astronomy related announcements Professor Flamsteed feels students should know. Be sure to check back often to make sure you don't miss something important!

There are two options for this homework. Please only complete ONE of them for credit. Doing more will not earn you double the house points. Extra credit is available to outstanding efforts and creativity.

option one (worth 10 pts)
Using your textbook, pick ONE of the lunar formation theories and write a brief essay on it using your own words.

Your essay should cover the following (at least):
  1. The name of the theory.
  2. A brief description of what the theory is.
  3. Whether or not you believe the theory to be true or not.

Essays should be at least 5 inches in length.

You may include an illustration of the theory you selected along with your essay for extra credit.
OOC: 5 inches is the equivalent of 2 paragraphs of at least 5 sentences each. Remember to keep your writing IC as your character and to NOT just copy paste from an internet source. Same goes for any illustrations you use.
option two (worth 15 pts)
Tides tides exist in all bodies of water, even the luxurious bathtub in the prefects bathroom, but depending on the overall mass of a body of water this may be so so infinitesimally small it is unmeasurable. At Hogwarts, our largest body of water is clearly the Black Lake. While its mass is nothing compared to an ocean, it is still plausible that you will notice a change in water level over time, much like one of the Great Lakes in North America (although the Moon's effects are mostly overcome by the effect of barometric pressure and the phenomenon known as a seiche).

Your task is to go down to the lake twice a day for a week (once in the morning and once in the afternoon approximately 6 hours and 12.5 minutes apart) and see if you notice any changes to the level of water in the Black Lake by keeping a log parchment. Muggle rulers will be provided outside my office for your use, along with bright orange flags that you can use to stick in the ground to mark the area you are using to make your measurements. I suggest you write your name on the flag so as not to get confused.

Any changes in tide you find should be subtle (most likely only between 0-5 cm), but if you notice something drastic, what do you think could have caused that? Be sure to write your theory down in your tide log parchment.
OOC: Despite the IC task saying twice a day for a week, you only need 4 posts (2 in a "morning TL" and 2 in an "afternoon TL") for full credit - plus possible extra credit for thoughtful RPing.

You do NOT need to RP picking up the supplies from Professor Flamsteed's office but may do so if you wish - just keep in mind this will not count towards your 4 post total.

Flags are about 4 feet tall so your character can wade out into the water a little for their measurements. You have total creative freedom over the measurements your character finds, but there shouldn't be a sudden 10 foot change or anything too dramatic without reason Which your character can theorize about.

You do NOT have to make an actual log sheet unless you want to (possible extra credit if you do though). Just be sure to include the key bits within your posts.

Your RPing should take place in the Black Lake thread and please title your posts "for Astronomy homework" or something similar. PM me the links to your posts along with the other required information when you are done
this assignment is due May 31st @ midnight GMT + 9

Please be sure you have read through Astronomy & Space Navigation and paid particular attention to the rules regarding homework submission. Late homework submissions will not be accepted. Any questions, concerns, or what have you can be sent to me via PM. You do NOT have to have participated in the lesson to do this homework.

[P.A.D. Joint lesson assignment]

There are two options for this homework. Please only complete ONE of them for credit. Doing more will not earn you double the house points. Extra credit is available to outstanding efforts and creativity.

#BRINGPEBBLESHOME option 1 (15 pts)
Create a Moon/Moon phase inspired Missing poster for Pebbles and place it somewhere around the castle. 1 house point per location (maximum of 5 locations).
OOC: This is a graphic making assignment. You may either draw by hand and scan your poster or create it using an image editing program. Please PM both the image file and links to your posts (NOT THE PERMALINK PLEASE).
#BRINGPEBBLESHOME option 2 (15 pts)
Write an ode to Pebbles and perform it in front of a friend or small audience. Be sure to include as many astronomy references as you can in your ode, especially some referencing the Moon and Moon phases.
OOC: There is no set length for your ode. Effort and thoughtfulness count more than length <3 Please PM me both your ode and the link (NOT THE PERMALINK PLEASE) to where your character performed their ode publicly in front of others.
this assignment is due July 3rd @ 11 pm GMT+9

Please be sure you have read through Astronomy & Space Navigation and paid particular attention to the rules regarding homework submission. Late homework submissions will not be accepted.

There are two options for this homework. Please only complete ONE of them for credit. Doing more than one will not earn you double the house points. An additional 5 points of extra credit is available to outstanding efforts and creativity.

option one (worth 10 points)
Create your own mystery box and leave it somewhere around the castle for someone to find and, potentially, open. Contents of the box is entirely up to you, but absolutely NOTHING malicious in nature.
OOC: This is an RP assignment and requires a minimum of 2 posts to be considered for full credit: 1 post dropping the box off somewhere in the castle and 1 post revealing it's contents to the person who opens it. While the prompt implies this should be done "by chance," please do not feel like you have to leave an open post and cross your fingers someone grabs it. You CAN ask a friend or use the School Chat to ask for someone to come play

Please PM me the links to your posts as well as the posts of your RP partner.
option two (worth 15 points)
Write an essay judging whether or not the seemingly inherent human ďneed to knowĒ is appropriate justification for the exploration of space. You may disagree or agree with what I have proposed in class. Just be sure that, if you do disagree, make sure that you explain very clearly why you disagree. Your essay should be at least 5 inches.
OOC: 5 inches equals about 3 paragraphs of at LEAST 5 sentences each.
extra credit (worth 5 points)
In the endless potential that is outer space, we have only begun to scrap the surface of things in our course studies. What ELSE would you like to explore in class? What topics interest you? What sort of things would you like to see and do? What potential do you see for Hogwarts' Astronomy?
OOC: Been a while since I have done this, but one of the fun aspects of holding lessons is touching upon topics that YOU, the fantastic RPers of SS, are interested in. So just let myself and Airey know what those may be!
this assignment is due July 25th @ 11:59 pm GMT+9

Please be sure you have read through Astronomy & Space Navigation and paid particular attention to the rules regarding homework submission. Late homework submissions will not be accepted. Any questions, concerns, or what have you can be sent to me via PM.
